A perennial flowering plant native to western Asia and Europe, St. John’s wort (Hypericum perforatum) is rich in history for a broad range of folkloric uses. Its contemporary therapeutic niche is to calm restlessness and nervousness.
The bright yellow flowers of St. John’s wort contain a naturally occurring compound called hypericin. This compound is believed to affect neurotransmitters within the central nervous system and be beneficial for mood. New Roots Herbal’s St.John’s Wort is a full-spectrum 8:1 extract.
